Kanata Lakes is a well known suburb of Ottawa and one of the most coveted neighbourhoods in Kanata, located in the central north area of Kanata. Originally part of the Township of March, the area was first settled in by Europeans in the early 19th century. The area was mostly agricultural until development began. The lands around the Kanata Lakes Golf & Country Club formed part of the initial core of Kanata, around which development has been growing ever since.
The area is home to many parks, trails and the famous Kanata Beaver Pond which connects the area to trails in Beaverbrook and is a nature lover’s haven. Schools in the area have great reputations including St. Gabriel School, All Saints Catholic High School, Georges Vanier School, W. Erskine Johnson, Kanata Highlands PS and Earl of March SS.
Amenities abound in this neighbourhood with all the conveniences such as grocers, pharmacies, banks, gas stations, restaurants, medical clinics, shopping and more all within minutes. However, something that is really special about Kanata Lakes is its access to the arts and recreation. The Kanata Symphony, Kanata Art Club, Kanata Theatre as well as many recreation spots including the Kanata Tennis Club and Kanata Soccer are all nearby. The John G. Mclack Centre supports the Kanata Artist’s Studio, the Kanata Seniors Centre as well as a fabulous public library branch!
